MASSTROPICAS blog by Mike Pigott

Mike Pigott is a Pittsfield native who started releasing records when he was 14, making his money washing dishes at Jimmy’s (solid Italian restaurant on west side of Pittsfield). He contacted Japanese punk bands saying he wanted to release their 7″ in the U.S., they’d send him the masters and he’d get the vinyl pressed. Fast forward a dozen years and Mike is still releasing records, now under his Masstropicas label, including a 7″ by Peruvians Los Chapillacs (“Cumbia PsicodĂ©lica”) and his own 45RPM 12″ collaboration with Peter Bonneman, GREEN MANSIONS.
